    Photos from Suzuka preseason testing. This is Toyota/lexus's current GT500 car that the supra will replace next year:

    Nice thank you! Not a lot of people in the states follow Super GT. No idea why. They are REALLY missing out....

    SuperGT just doesn't do a good job promoting their series outside japan. Their english social media presence leaves a lot to be desired and they don't send many foreign journalists over to their races and whatnot.

    TRD were testing two different front canard (vortex generator) designs:

    Notice the Tom's car above (orange AU car) has two smaller cannard elements near the JBL logo, while the blue car doesn't.

    Honda were also exploring canard designs since 2019 GT500 regulations opened up development of that area. Notice the almost F1-like canard designs.
